On a radiant Sunday, a few hundred people came out for a last-call effort to oppose the Turcot project. The Environment minister Line Beauchamp will make public her recommendation this week, the project will then be sent to Charest's ministers council for a final decision.
We have learned that there is dissension in the council. The health and social services ministry came out against the project this week. This is good news - the last time the MSSS took position on a mega-project in the South-West, it was to express its' opposition to the Pointe St-Charles Casino.
We know the fate of that ill-conceived project.
Will history be repeated?

Maybe we can win. Here's the alternative:
Cars, and profits, over people.
We'll have a better idea on Wednesday...
